"I have made this bread several times and always get raves wherever I take it. Had bananas and carrots to use up. Made two loaves one with nuts and one without to take to work. It is so moist and the flavor with the cinnamon is just amazing. This has now become my go to banana bread. Thanks for the recipe!"

"a very nice recipe- not too sweet, just right. It went together very quickly- next time I may add more cinnamon or a bit of ginger just because I like the spices"

"Very tasty! Carrots must subdue strong banana flavor. I made 12 mini muffins and one loaf in a smaller pan."
